Read and Write Software

Read&Write is an easy-to-use add-on software for PCs and Macs that supports students with reading, writing, studying, and research. The software is free to all University of Saskatchewan employees and students to download to their personal device. The software makes the web, documents and files more accessible - any time, any place, and on any platform or device. It's great for people with dyslexia and other learning difficulties, or anyone whose first language isn't English.

With Read&Write you can:

  • Hear text read aloud to improve reading comprehension, with a choice of natural voices.
  • Understand unfamiliar words with text and picture dictionaries.
  • Highlight and copy text from documents and web pages to create study guides, outlines or complete assignments.
  • Supports writing skills with word prediction.
  • Turn text from documents and web pages into MP3 sound files for listening on the move.
  • Check writing mistakes with proofreading tools.
